(military marker)
Sacred to the Memory of Mr. Jonathan Bowen
who on the first day of Aug., 1817
in the 24th year of his age,
at Mantanzes, W.I., by lightning
was struck instantly dead!
From the first dawn of his life
to the fatal period of it
he had justly acquired universal respect
He was steady in his habits, enterprising in his genius,
and promising in his prospects;
but Death!  Swift death!
has withered a most hopeful member of society.
His only surviving brother erects
this Monument to perpetuate the
remembrance of his departed friend.
Capt. Pardon Bowen
[BOWEN, PARDON, CAPT 1764c - 23 AUG 1797]
